Chronic Wound Care

Your Pathway to Proper Healing

Our bodies have the ability to heal. Some wounds, however, don't heal on their own. They are called chronic wounds, injuries or sores that don't heal within two to three months and therefore require specialized care from wound care physicians. These types of wounds are often associated with other health problems, such as diabetes or vascular disorders, but they can also occur as pressure sores or from traumatic incidents

Wound care is the medical specialty focused on the proper treatment of a wound to ensure it heals correctly. Our body's natural wound healing is an intricate process, and sometimes, it needs the expertise of a trained wound care physician.
